Contrasting intimate visits to artists studios with explorations of the countrys sweeping landscapes of light and form that have inspired artists since the Luminists and the Hudson River School, here is a privileged look at the dreams, ideas, and thoughts of more than one hundred American artists who are active today.From established figures such as Marina Abramović, John Baldessari, Chris Burden, Francesco Clemente Chuck Close, John Currin, Rachel Feinstein, Richard Prince, Robert Irwin, Kiki Smith, Bill Viola, and Lawrence Weiner to members of the new guard, including Diana Al-Hadid, Tauba Auerbach, Mark Bradford, Theaster Gates, Rashid Johnson, and Sterling Ruby, this profusely and beautifully illustrated journey through artists studios provides an unprecedented look into the workings of one of the worlds largest artistic communities.From New Yorks skyline to Southern Californias sunny boardwalks, Art Studio America will embolden readers the chance to embark on transformative journeys of their own.The book includes essays by Robert Storr, Mark Godfrey, and Ben Genocchio.
